7:12 am
name and we'll get on with something else. this just doesn't happen the way it did yesterday. >> so it might be more damage to the possibility of confirmation? >> i don't think he helped himself. i would say that because it seems to me after the white house's kind of tepid reaction they had, it seems to be saying to democrats if this is a hard vote for you, do what you need to do. >> what do you make of john mccain? >> well, this is a very interesting thing. let's not forget that chuck hagel was john mccain's co-chairman, the co-chairman of his national campaign when he ran for president the first time. these were busosum buddies, vietnam veterans and john mccain says this split is about policy and nothing more until we find other evidence i guess we take him at his word but this is a deep breach, i don't think there's a question about that one. >> "face the nation" this sunday who is your guest? >> we'll have roger goodell, the commissioner of professional

fun experience and never knows we're even here. >> so the possibility of a plane, a real threat and they have time to take care of the threat? >> so that's why they have this layered approach. charlie, there has about the none a super bowl since 9/11 when they put in that restricted air space, where some plane hasn't flown into it and they've had to come up on that plane, call them on the radio, lead them down to an air field, question them, who are you, what were you doing and in most cases it's just a mixup, they didn't know where the restricted air space was but that's why you have these two doughnuts. the 30-mile area thing is so when a plane comes in they can start that process, identify the aircraft what's its intent where is it going? can we escort it out. if you get as far as that ten-mile radius where the superdome is the bull's eye there, then you're going to see much more aggressive action and that's when those f-15s that are right across the river here and we've seen them running around in the sky practicing, that's

7:36 am
into that package and try to render it safe. >> do we know of any credible threats? >> you know no credible threats that are on the radar, but they'll never find comfort in the idea that they don't know about a threat. they just assume there's one out there and plan for it. >> john miller thank you very much for that. and nearly 180 years ago, the first streetcar made its way through new orleans. now there's a new addition to the family. we'll take you along for a look at the streetcar's past and future, and tomorrow winston marsalis explores the meaning of this city's signature song "when the saints go marching in" as we joining you for "cbs this morning saturday."
